Raymond Tan

artist background cover

Raymond is a 49 year old freelance illustrator who specializes in sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and children's book illustrations. He has a Bachelor’s of Arts in Illustration from the Academy of Arts in San Francisco. For years after graduating, Raymond worked in several non-art related jobs but found it unrewarding. In 2006, he decided to start creating art again, this time through digital painting. As a huge movie buff, and pop culture geek, lots of inspiration and subject matter comes from that. Most of the commissioned work is for book or e-book covers but he has done a couple of game boxes, cd covers, and several commissioned personal pieces as well. Raymond has been doing commissioned work on and off since 2012, recently adding Rebelle to his creative tool box.
